We love fairy tales! I mean, we LOVEfairy tales!!
In the last few years, the teaching of fairy tales and nursery rhymes in the public school systems went by the wayside. However, current research is urging teachers to bring them back into the curriculum. Experts agree that nursery rhymes are great for teaching rhyme, rhythm and repetition. Fairy tales teach story elements such as setting, characters, problem-solution and beginning, middle and end (to name a few).
We use fairy tales with PreKindergarten all the way through third grades. We use fairy tales to teach reading comprehension, math and almost every skill you can think of! Enjoy the freebie which we have used for first, second and third grade students. (Click here.) There is much more to this freebie if you check out our TPT store.
